Kantha is a type of embroidery popular in Bangladesh and in West BengalIndia. The use of kantha is popular in saris traditionally worn by women in Bengal, but any garment or cloth with kantha embroidery (having a border of decorative running stitch motifs) may be called a kantha garment.

Kantha stitching is also used to make simple quilts. Women in Bengal typically use old saris and cloth and layer them with kantha stitch to make a light blanket, throw or bedspread, especially for children. Kantha is very popular with tourists visiting Bengal and is a specialty of Bolpur/Shantiniketan, and is similar to the decorative running stitch of Japanese sashiko quilting. Kantha originated from the way in which Bengali housewives mended old clothes by taking out a strand of thread from the colorful border of their saris and making simple designs with them.
